Why Do We Need A Systematic Approach To Select A LIMS?


NEMC 2011

Major Life Purchases

  • Automobile

  • House

Usually Purchased Based On High Level Requirements


NEMC 2011

LIMS High Level Requirements

  • Must Be User Friendly

  • Must Operate On Windows

  • Must Operate On The Internet

  • Must Be Able To Track Samples

  • Must Perform QC

  • Must Generate Reports


NEMC 2011

Requirements

Approximately 100 Commercial LIMS And They All Can Meet Those High Level Requirements

LIMS Operate At The Granular Level Of The Organization


NEMC 2011

High Rate Of Failure

50% Of All LIMS Initiatives Do Not Get Fully Implemented, Do Not Meet User Expectations Or Fail Outright.


NEMC 2011

LIMS Requirements Decomposition

  • Must Be Able To Track Samples

  • Does It Track Split Samples?

  • How Does It Track Redos?

  • Does Each Container Have A Unique Number?

  • How Does It Handle Broken Bottles?

  • Can The LIMS Record That the Sample Was Not Received?


NEMC 2011

Typical LIMS Evaluation

  • Ask A Colleague

  • Internet Search

  • Attend A Conference

  • Invite Vendor To Perform Demonstration

This Approach Only Addresses High Level Requirements


NEMC 2011

LIMS Risk Components

  • Under Estimate Configuration

  • Vague Integration Requirements

  • Data Migration Component

  • Unrealistic Schedule

  • Lack of Sufficient Budget


NEMC 2011

LIMS Selection Systematic Approach

  • Work Process Evaluation and Requirements Analysis

  • Develop Request for Proposal and Score Results

  • Vendor Demonstrations and Score Results


NEMC

Work Process And Requirements Analysis

  • Interviews

    • Include All Stakeholder Groups

    • Segment By Functional Area

  • Decompose Requirements

  • Prioritize


  • NEMC 2011

    Please Describe How Your System Conforms To The Semi-Volatiles Analysis and Data Review Process

    Requirements Matrix


    NEMC 2011

    Request For Proposal

    • RFP Components

      • Business Overview

      • Organizational Structure

      • Work Process Descriptions

      • Process Flow Diagrams

      • Requirements Matrix

    • Industry Experience

    • Company Profile

    • Cost

    Product Demonstration

    • Demonstrate How System Conforms To Requirements and Workflows

    • Not A Sales Demonstration

    • Standardize Demonstration Using Custom Demonstration Scripts

      • Vendor and Product Overview

      • Demonstration Data

      • Demonstration Tasks


    NEMC 2011


    NEMC 2011

    Demonstration Do’s and Dont’s

    • Schedule Enough Time

    • If You Don’t See it - Ask

    • Keep To The Scripts

    • The Goal Is Not To Trick The Vendor


    NEMC 2011

    Cost Analysis

    • Compare Apples To Apples

      • Licenses

      • Services

      • Support

  • Cost Should Include All Demonstrated Functionality

  • Level of Effort Must Make Sense

    Summary

    LIMS Implementations Are High Risk

    A Systematic Approach Will Reduce The Risk
